WFFT Fort Wayne Explore The Honey BeeThe declining bee population has been noted since the 1990’s and Southwest Honey Co has decided that the time is now to address this dire problem.

The Southwest Honey Company is holding a pollinator educational program called ‘explore the Honey Bee’ and some lucky kids got to get a sneak preview and learn more about these bees.

“How they hatch and how they make the honey,” said Wesley Javins and Issac Warnick.

Wesley Javins and Issac Warnick are fourth and third graders who love to learn. In fact, Issac got to try honey from the bees today and was pleasantly surprised.

“The honey in there tastes exactly like the honey from my house,” announced Issac.

“They make us food and help the plants grow really. They make our food healthier and better by pollinating the plants they grow on,” said Wesley.
